Kendell Geers features in ‘K.I.P. (Art in Puurs-Sint-Amands)'
'K.I.P' brings together emerging and international artists in an annual project which spans the outdoor public spaces of Puurs-Sint-Amands. For its third iteration, Kendell Geers presents 'Pro Deo et Patria', a sculpture in which two police batons are placed side by side in the sign of a cross. A tool of neither church nor state, this provocative sculpture embodies Geers' faith in the power of art to "change the world – one perception at a time."
Curated by collector Wilfried Cooreman in collaboration with CC Binder, the presentation also features artists including Carla Arocha, Kati Heck, Otobong Nkanga, Gert Robijns, Stéphane Schraenen, Pascale Marthine Tayou, Narcisse Tordoir and Henk Visch. Twenty-four permanent sculptures from previous editions of the exhibition are also on display, including works by Stijn Van Dorpe, Jos De Gruyter, Wouter Feyaerts, and Harald Thys.
